Review: THE PLAYER AND THE PIXIE by LH Cosway & Penny Reid


(Rugby #2)

L.H. Cosway & Penny Reid


How can someone so smokin’ hot be so bad in bed? I mean, Sean Cassidy is absolute rubbish. RUBBISH. He is the epitome of walking, talking false advertising and I want a refund! Plus he’s an arsehole. So… what is wrong with me that I can’t stop thinking about him?

Lucy Fitzpatrick doesn’t like rugby.
As the little sister of Ireland’s most infamous rugby player, Lucy can’t seem to escape the championship-sized shadow cast by her big brother, or her mother’s frequent attempts to micromanage her future. Her rainbow hair is as free-spirited as her quest for inner peace, yet overbearing expectations keep bringing her down. And when she’s down, her compulsive little problem lands her in seriously big trouble.

Sean Cassidy is a cold-hearted brute… or so he’s been told. Frequently. By everyone.
His blonde locks, baby blues, and rock hard bod make ladies the world over drool with desire. As the rugby world’s second most infamous player, he should be basking in his success. But Sean has never been content settling for second place, and his frequent confrontations with Lucy’s big brother leave him cold. And when he’s cold, his compulsive little problem lands him in the lap of Lucy Fitzpatrick.

Sean has a problem only Lucy can solve. Lucy has a problem only Sean can fix. The solution seems obvious: you scratch my back, and I’ll bail you out of jail. But when their business arrangement unexpectedly leaves Sean scorching hot and Lucy on the precipice of inner peace, can they convince the world—and Lucy’s big brother in particular—that this is the real deal?

Either way, both the Player and the Pixie are about to teach each other some pretty monumental lessons about family, life, but most importantly, love.

The Pixie and the Player is a full-length, romantic comedy novel, can be read as a standalone, and is the second book in the Rugby Series.


Sometimes a storyline WOWs you and other times you simply just enjoy it without the WOW factor. The Player and the Pixie was a storyline that I enjoyed but there were things that held me back from totally loving it.

I bought and listened to the audio of this one. The narration was fine but again didn’t WOW me. I think the male narration is what threw me off a little but not enough to stop listening to it.

Sports romance is a genre that I love and the idea of the hero being the jerk player who has a beef with the heroine’s brother is a great premise for a steamy, tension-filled romance. Lucy and Sean hide their relationship from Lucy’s brother because there’s no way he’s going to be OK with his sister dating this douchebag.

Fortunately, for the reader, we learn that Sean isn’t as bad as he leads others to think. He’s got faults – like he’s bad in bed. Luckily, for him, Lucy, is a willing teacher.

THE PLAYER AND THE PIXIE is the second book in the Rugby series. It can be read as a standalone. Lovers of the authors, LH Cosway and Penny Reid, are going to love this sports romance. This author duo has set the romance world on fire with their Rugby series and if you aren’t reading them you are missing out. The combo of steam, humor, and tension keeps the reader intrigued. I already have the audio for book 3: The Cad and the Co-ed cued up my audible app.
